Motorola was expected to unveil the new Moto E this week and indeed it has. Today it finally lifted the wraps off of its new smartphone. Right off the bat you will notice two things about this new device. It has a bigger display than its predecessor and happens to have support for 4G LTE. The new smartphone goes on sale today in 40 markets around the world.
The new Moto E from Motorola has a 4.5-inch 540×960 display, a quadcore Snapdragon 410 processor from Qualcomm, 8GB onboard storage, microSD card support, 5 megapixel rear and VGA front camera, and it comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop straight out of the box.
What’s interesting is that this is still the most affordable smartphone in Motorola’s lineup yet it now offers support for 4G LTE. Motorola has also added the Quick Capture feature to this smartphone which will allow users to launch the camera app with just one twist of their wrist. Active Display feature is present as well which wakes up the screen to show notifications even when the phone is pulled out of the pocket.
As far as the design is concerned that aren’t any discernible changes that set the latest and the previous generation Moto E apart. Motorola starts selling the Moto E with LTE today for $149. 3G models will be sold for $119.
